Walk a Mile in HER Shoes is a symbolic gesture of men marching in female footwear to raise awareness and money for the issue of violence against women. The Walk gives men the opportunity to publicly take a stand, and it shows that men are willing to stand together with women in making the world a safer place for all women and children.
About Gillian's Place
For over 35 years, Gillian's Place has protected and served abused women and their children in St. Catharines and North Niagara. Whether women need the safety of the shelter or access to the many programs offered on an outreach basis, Gillian's Place is here to help. The agency has grown to provide a range of services for women which include a 24 hour support line, safe shelter, safety planning and counselling, emotional support, legal advice, transitional assistance and public education. All services are free, completely confidential and available to all women 16 and over. You do not need to stay in the shelter to access our services.
Walk the Walk • Make a Difference • And let the "Heeling" Begin!
